SkipTo.js Keyboard Utility

SkipTo.js is a simple and modern way to improve keyboard access to the structure of the accessibly designed website (e.g. ARIA Landmarks and Heading Structure) and is designed to replace the simple "Skip To Main Content" link to meet the Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 requirements to bypass blocks of content using only the keyboard. The DRES AITG is working with PayPal and other partners to improve the utility.
